So Pwc is handling Covid the best, but don’t forget what they are really like... https://www.reddit.com/r/cringe/comments/6eh795/the_second_hand_embarrassment_is_strong_on_this/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf
I’m a first time dog owner, got a covid puppy, and would appreciate some advice around what to do with my dog, if I have to return to the office 3 days a week. I imagine I’ll be gone for about 9 hours. Do people just pay the $20-30 for a dog walker in Toronto? Isn’t that a lot of money? My dog’s breed doesn’t actually need much walking but he definitely would get bored by himself for so long. I am so torn, between taking a work from home 4/5 days job vs intense hybrid corporate work.
A random thought about covid - before everyone jumps down my throat I’m not saying this is how it should be just curious as to your opinion (see comments)
If anyone thinks Coronavirus situation isn't at least in part politically motivated is lying to themselves. How can you tell? Look what conservative states are doing vs liberal.
Lol to the person who posted the picture comparing hairdressers resuming work to people illegally crossing the border. Comparing COVID to the Flu is ludicrous and apples to oranges but comparing breaking a law to violating a mandate (although in their example Texas is open) isn’t apples and oranges when it fits their narrative apparently 🤨
What do all these protestors do for a living? I don’t know anyone in my friend group who can afford to take off time from work or risk getting COVID-19
I just had a doc appointment and as I was walking up, I noticed 4 staff members with their masks completely pulled down below their chins until they saw me approaching. They then pulled their masks up but it made me uncomfortable. If masks are required in doctors offices, shouldn’t they remain on all the time even if patients aren’t in the immediate vicinity? Especially since covid can last in the air for hours. I’m vaccinated but higher risk
My brother is a mechanic with 10+ years experience but was laid off due to COVID. He's having a hard time even finding jobs to apply for and asked me for advice. I don't even know what someone can do without a degree. He has valuable hard skills but I just don't think there's a demand in NYC right now. Should I advise him to go to school? He'd have to fully finance his degree and I'm just not sure if it's worth it for him to start over at the bottom, or what industry he'd even fit in...
Not sure if I buy this, but would be great if it turns out true.... Cliffs: Author is predicting we are over the infection hump with as many as 50-66% of Americans already infected with Covid and possessing natural resistance
People need to start flying, booking hotels, visiting retail stores. We need our sanity and economy back. We need to understand that if we do not allow our cash to circulate we are all going to be in trouble pretty soon. Enough of just buying on Amazon, liquor stores, weed man etc. Go back to your normal life and spending pattern and wear your masks and sanitize. I understand that most people live under fear but what is the point of being alive if you are not living. COVID-19 is here for a whols
There are millions of people dying of wars (like Afghan), famine (like Yemen) and also Covid. Why should I be okay with my company donating and speaking on my behave with so much focus on BLM? I agree it matters, but overall, we live a good life in the United States comparing to the rest of the word, regardless of race. The attention to race equality is important but I feel bad for the poor forgotten souls that are facing other issues on earth. They matter too?
Given the presidents comments in the debate and the constant violations of the Hatch act that likely increased the risk of him catching COVID (ie all those maskless people on the lawn)...why should the American tax payers foot his medical bills now. This seems like something he should be paying OOP due to his recklessness
I'm shocked by how many smart people on here emphasize the wrong things in preventing the spread of COVID. It doesn't matter if a place looks clean and feels safe. Clorox wipes and gloves do not help much. The issue is how much time you spend close to other people, especially indoors, whether or not you are wearing masks (and, if so, N95 or surgical) and the air exchange rate. It isn't "safe" to eat indoors at a restaurant because it looks clean and the staff bleach the tables.
Trump haters and supporters, is there anything Trump could do to change your mind either way? Anything so vile you'd vote Biden? Anything so praiseworthy you'd vote Trump? https://www.vox.com/2020/9/2/21409364/trump-approval-rating-2020-election-voters-coronavirus-convention-polls
I have a friend's wedding coming up in couple of weeks. Not sure if I should go. - Had COVID in the past (live with essential workers. It was nightmare). - The wedding is outdoors and the reception is indoors - Masks are optional - If I go, I will wear mask and maintain social distance Also, advice on etiquette if I go.. continued..
Roommates and I have all moved back with parents amid Covid. Our NY lease ends in July w option to renew but building mgmt isn’t willing to negotiate lease and we are open to moving...cont.
